Here are some of the most recent (January 2018) additions:
Study and experience A Course in Miracles with School for ACIM facilitators (who have collectively learned, practiced, and taught the Course for nearly a 100 years ). This is a six-month program from January 1st, 2018, thru the end of June. We cover and explore in-depth all of the fundamental ideas of forgiveness and healing in the Course and the how-tos for application in our everyday lives.
The program includes two-hour classes twice a month on Sundays. We provide online access to hours of listening from our Dr. Kenneth Wapnick Memorial Library. Ken is the world-renowned authority on the Course and also the beloved teacher for all our SFACIM teachers. (Ken made his transition a few years ago.)
Since our relationships provide the classrooms in which we learn forgiveness, we dedicate a special full day seminar on “Relationships” on a Saturday in April.
Perhaps one of the most valued aspects of the entire Immersion is the one-on-one mentoring sessions by our skilled facilitators. These take place twice a month during the six months. (Note that these intensives are typically offered only once a year; here is the announcement for the similar program that started in Jan. 2017.)
These classes are available both In-person and Online.

This workshop is an introduction to – or a deepening of the practical application of – the basic fundamental themes and process of forgiveness and healing in A Course in Miracles.
This seminar is great for beginners and for those fairly new to the Course. It is also very helpful for ongoing Course students desiring a refresher in Course basics. All are welcome.
If you are fairly new, taking this workshop is highly recommended for those who may be considering taking the four-week series in October on the Psychotherapy Pamphlet and/or the 2018 Six Month Course Immersion. Details and registration here.
This class has been CANCELLED.
Who: suggested for ACIM students already somewhat familiar with the Course
Psychotherapy from a Course point of view: what is it, and how does that process look? This pamphlet is for everyone! You don’t have to be a psychotherapist to take advantage of its wonderful wisdom on healing.
This four-evening course will explore Jesus’ first pamphlet given to Helen Schucman after the dictation of the Course itself. We will look at the pamphlet’s 25 pages in its three sections (Purpose, Process, and Practice), and all of its many insights into the Course’s unusual and untraditional approach to healing in general.
Wednesdays Noon to 1:30 PM
Leader: Lyn Corona.
Note: This class is suspended thru July & August 2017, and will resume on Tuesdays in Sept. 2017 – (Online only, not available in-person) details here.
The Journey Through the Manual for Teachers (JTTM) is the “how to” document for A Course in Miracles. It instructs us how to become teachers of God, meaning demonstrations of love. The world has everything backwards because it operates on the premise that one’s own interests are separate from everyone else’s. Everything is then evaluated based on whether we get what we want. If we do we are “happy”; if we don’t we are miserable. A Course in Miracles attempts to undo this selfish point of view by teaching us shared interests. Its manual tells us that the sole qualification of a teacher of God is that he has made a deliberate choice not to see his interests apart from someone else’s. In this class we will proceed in a linear fashion through the 27 questions posed in the manual using Journey through the Manual, by Kenneth Wapnick, Ph.D., as an accompaniment to help us understand and integrate the material. The suggested offering for the class is $10 (half is donated to the RMMC.) Here is a printable flyer for the class.
